  1. In fact, I was hoping someone from here would listen to it since I couldn't 😉
  2. If anyone's interested, ESNS conference has just started and today they're going to talk about 2022 festival season: https://esns.nl/conference/festival-season-2022/2022-01-19/13:00
  3. The festival director says we're getting some new names this month (also he's confident the festival will go ahead): https://rozrywka.trojmiasto.pl/Opener-Mystic-Soundrive-najwieksze-festiwale-w-Trojmiescie-Czy-sie-odbeda-n163240.html
  4. 2nd July is the only day where we still need a headliner. The Cure were supposed to play that day in 2020, but they already have 2 shows announced in Poland. I think FATM are now more a co-headline material than a solo headliner, especially for Saturday, where we had some big acts the last couple of years (The Cure, Bruno Mars, Lana Del Rey - SMH co-headline).
  5. It is definitely not too soon and I guess FATM co-headlining with Imagine Dragons is quite possible.
  6. Thanks for the update! Can you share what is the general attitude towards festival season in the industry right now? Is it much better than last year?
  7. Have you checked OFF Festival or Fest Festival? Apart from Opener, I'm planning to do them both as well. Not much announced so far, but there are some nice names. I still think that Opener will bring a nice poster, maybe not that strong in terms of headliners like Mad Cool or Werchter, but with a very good undercard. But I get that their announcement 'strategy' may be very irritating.
  8. It's rather always one headliner and one strong sub. Can't remember anything similar to Dua / Muse (in terms of popularity). Sure, we almost had The Killers / The Cure / The Chemical Brothers in 2020, but it didn't finally happen. If we're talking about big names, there's still place for one headliner (Saturday) and two co-headliners (Wednesday and Thursday). What's still possible? QOTSA, The Killers, ASAP, Kendrick (if he changes his plans once again), Tame Impala, Stormzy. What surprises me is that we still dont have a single rap name. It has to change quickly, especially if you take a look on past line-ups and see that with each year we had more and more hip hop acts. Opener is quite well known for being one of the slowest festivals in terms of announcements, so it is totally normal for them to leave things till February or even longer. Headliners being announced in April/May? Used to happen a few times before.
  9. There's Dua Lipa already on Friday, so no, no chance. I guess we won't be getting any announcements until mid-February. January was always rather quiet for them and with the current situation around COVID-19 (we have a lot of deaths in Poland every day) they will probably wait when it calms down a little.
  10. Are 4-days tickets already sold-out? Also, what is the best way to buy tickets, if you're from abroad (EU-based)?
  11. Also, let's remember that there were festivals in some countries in 2021, when vaccination numbers were much lower that now (let alone summer 2022). I think the only real problem is indeed big acts with a lot of staff and huge production costs pulling out due to uncertainty in winter, when they probably have to make some decisions. And the question is how big festivals (like RW or Roskilde) will handle it.
  12. Yeah, the headliners are weak so far, but at least 3 big names are still missing. The undercard is quite strong tough. Alter Stage looks good.
  13. Based on their recent IG stories and that it is almost one month since last announcements, I'd bet on next week.
  14. I'm not even sure if Stones and Boss are going to include Poland in their tour next year, let alone Opener. Kendrick is possible though.
  15. Good spot! The official announcement is coming at 7pm today. Hopefully, it will be in line with this article.
  16. I wonder if there's some big batch of names coming this Friday since other festivals (Mad Cool, Roskilde, Open'er, Nos Alive etc.) have already shared a fair amount of their line-ups.
  17. The 5th day is official now: https://madcoolfestival.es/en/faqs.php "If you have purchased any type of ticket for Mad Cool 2022 before Wednesday Oct 20th 2021 at 10.59am, you have 50% discount when purchasing a ticket for Sunday July 10th 2022." Does it mean we're getting an announcement today?
  18. Swedish House Mafia? The black theme on Mad Cool instagram may also suggests that.
  19. So as for now, there are no signs of Kendrick doing European festivals in 2022?
  20. Just posted this in Roskilde thread, but I think it may be relevant here as well: No Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, and Billie Eillish (Glasto is the only festival she's playing in 2022) for Roskilde 2022 according to the festival's director: https://soundvenue.com/musik/2021/10/ingen-kendrick-ingen-billie-eilish-roskilde-festival-lukker-definitivt-ned-for-tre-af-vores-headliner-oensker-til-2022-462068
  21. No Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, and Billie Eillish (Glasto is the only festival she's playing in 2022) for Roskilde 2022 according to the festival's director: https://soundvenue.com/musik/2021/10/ingen-kendrick-ingen-billie-eilish-roskilde-festival-lukker-definitivt-ned-for-tre-af-vores-headliner-oensker-til-2022-462068
  22. Just take a look at some of the past Roskilde line-ups and you won't be surprised anymore. Their undecard is always very strong and vast.
  23. Strange there is no Polish date at all. Also, a lot of gaps between the gigs. Anyway, it seems we can cross them out. That leaves us with either The Cure, someone with no dates yet (Coldplay?), or maybe some co-headlining structure, e.g. The Killers/QOTSA?
